The violent assault and rape of a girl in the capital of India, New Delhi in 2012 had shaken the entire country. The Nirbhaya gangrape, united the country into one big collective force which had demanded nothing less than death sentence for the four accused. The minor who was one of the accused was let off quite gently owing to his age. The public had taken to the streets demanding strict punishment to the accused and the Delhi High Court decision which came later on coincided with the public sentiments. The barbaric rape which had been committed by the accused on the young woman had led to her death. Her family had been fighting to get justice for their daughter and the Delhi High Court judge too rejected the chances of a lesser sentence. According to the judge the case had “shocked the collective conscience of India” and awarded capital punishments as it came under the “rarest of rare” category. The Supreme Court of India too has rejected the petitions filed by the four guilty persons for reduction of the sentence. Yesterday, on 9th of July the SC once again rejected the review petition filed by three of the four accused.
The Supreme Court's decision to uphold death penalty for the accused in the Nirbhaya case is an unfortunate step towards the continued use of the death penalty in India. #NirbhayaVerdict https://t.co/WtMCEGDb2h

Some pseudo-liberals from the society and some so called human rights groups have decided to question the rejection of the review petition by the Supreme Court. Kavita Krishnan, leader of Communist Party of India (ML) and secretary of All India People Welfare Association, took to Twitter to explain how death for rape is not going to help the situation of the women in the country. A more detailed approach was taken by the ‘human rights’ organisation Amnesty International who went on to quote Asmita Basu over the matter. According to Basu, “Unfortunately executions do not eradicate violence against women. There is no evidence to show that the death penalty acts as a deterrent for sexual violence or any other crime. Instead, the government must allocate adequate resources for the effective implementation of laws, improve conviction rates and ensure certainty of justice in all cases. Even the Justice Verma Committee, whose recommendations were relied upon to reform laws on sexual assault and rape, had opposed imposing the death penalty in cases of rape.”
She essentially forgets that the victim and her family had a life too, true the killing of the accused today will in no way bring back the victim to life but if there are chances of even one person getting discouraged from committing such acts then that will bring a difference. Also the death of rapists and murderers is in no way a loss to our society, the act which they took part in was a well thought out act. They fully knew the consequences of what they were doing. Tushar Gandhi and the pseudo-secular, libtard cabal should do a retrospection on what their current stand is on this issue. These are the same cabal who branded the people demanding CBI inquiry in the Kathua rape case as pro-rapists. This is actually what a pro-rapist cabal looks and acts like, left and pseudo-liberals joining hands with human rights organisation to save rapists from punishment. The Supreme Court should take this into consideration and punish them for being involved in contempt of court and slap a hefty fine on these individuals to teach them a lesson. Justice for Nirbhaya and her family should happen as soon as possible, there should be no roadblocks on that route.
